Quick and Easy Shrimp with Vegetable Medley

This dinner came about on one of those days where I felt like I had been eating pasta, carbs, cheese, and just overall junk foods.  I needed to eat some vegetables, but I didn’t want to feel like I had to eat yet another salad.  Just because you’re trying to eat healthy and eat a veggie-based meal, doesn’t mean that you have to punish yourself with bland food!  This meal is extremely versatile–basically take all of the vegetables that you have that are close to withering away in your crisper drawer, chop them up and throw them in this!  There really aren’t any rules.

Since I wasn’t adding any carbs to this dish, I wanted to make sure that it had a protein component for extra staying power.  Shrimp is one of those proteins that is light and extremely easy to cook, but that also makes it extremely easy to over-cook.  I did cheat and use a little bit of white wine, but if you’re really trying to make this dish healthy, you should go ahead and use some low-sodium vegetable broth.

Instructions
  1. Chop all vegetables into bite sized pieces.
  2. Place a large, deep sauté pan over medium heat. Add 1 tbsp of high heat oil such as avocado or coconut oil. I used ghee which is clarified butter that is lactose free.
  3. Add the diced onion to the pan and sauté until softened. This should take about 3 minutes or so. Be careful that you don't have the heat up so high that you scorch the onions.
  4. Add in 2 cloves of garlic and allow to sauté until fragrant, this will take about 30 seconds up to a minute.
  5. Add in the tomato paste and mash into the onions and garlic. Allow to heat until you begin to see the tomato paste toasting slightly.
  6. Add in the rest of the vegetables, canned tomatoes, and the italian seasoning. Stir to combine. Let the veggies soften over medium heat while stirring occasionally. After the vegetables have softened and the sauce is thickened, you're ready to serve. This will take about 20 minutes.
  7. While the vegetables are softening, we're going to start the shrimp!
  8. In a separate sauté pan, add the other tbsp of oil over medium heat. Once fragrant, add in the garlic and lemon zest. Stir to combine.
  9. After the garlic has been sautéing for about 30 seconds, add in the wine. Allow the wine to simmer for about a minute until the sharpness of the alcohol is more muted.
  10. I decided to use a dry white chardonnay. Any white wine that is not super sweet will work. You're only using a cup so you're going to need to drink the rest of it or save it to cook another dish. When looking at white wines, I typically cook with chardonnay or pinot grigio.
  11. Add in the shrimp and cover with a lid. Allow to simmer for about 5 minutes or until the shrimp is fully pink and firm.
  12. After the shrimp is fully pink and firm, it's ready to eat! Go ahead and serve the shrimp over the vegetables and enjoy.

Welcome to Cooking in Cleveland! I want to share delicious, healthy and approachable recipes with you. I want to help highlight local Cleveland artisans and events and put a focus on using local foods!
  • Brainstorming future goals and plans for @cooking_in_cleveland this evening with a #dairyfree #decaflatte and a snuggly puppy by my side.  So grateful for everyone that has followed along so far.  I can't wait for what's to come! #wordpressbloggergirl #staytuned  #nespressomoment
  • Sorry I've been so MIA, but I've  been working on a rebrand for the blog. Stay tuned for good things ahead!! #cookingincleveland #foodblogger #beginningblogger #iphonephoto
  • While on the #Whole30 challenge, the unthinkable happened…I learned to LIKE cauliflower.  I blame this recipe and some of the other stir fry dishes we made that used fresh cauliflower rice.

This dish is mostly #Whole30 compliant except for any additions you might make to this recipe such as #Sriracha for added heat or swapping soy sauce instead of the coconut aminos.

Check out the link in my bio and let me know what you think!
